What Went Right/Wrong: The Game

First posted at Inside The Shoe There's something very deceiving about the 6-6 record that Ohio State holds for the 2011 season. A lot of these losses came down to either the final couple of minutes in the game, or were within striking distance the entire day. We lost to Michigan 40-34. B...

I will boycott the BCS if...

Let's forget about the potential SEC orgy that could be the National Championship game.  I've heard that bowl projections have Michigan going to the Sugar Bowl.  I heard that Michigan could go over Stanford, who only has one loss, because they "travel better".  Th...

Legends are Made

Saturday at 11:00, the teams will take to the field for warm-ups. Stare downs, taunts, maybe even a little shoving. They will walk on to the field with much on line. For Michigan, a possible BCS at-large bid to revive the program. Nothing makes you forget all about RichRod like a trip to New Orle...

Why I Hate

There are some that say that this rivalry has lost it's spark.  Somewhere between the Vest's dominance of the Midwest and the miserable RichRod years, the passion and intrigue disappeared..  Screw that noise. We hate because it's in our blood.  Our fathers hated, th...

JB Shugarts is the 39% #OCCUPYSCRIMMAGE

You've thought it, said it and heard it for the past three years: JB Shugarts has to have at least 50 false start penalties in his career. BUT DOES HE REALLY? Shugarts' false starts have become so routine they're practically expected in each game. However, in honor of Bruce Hooley...

Riddance Good

Hindsight may be 20/20 but many were calling these potential mistakes before they came to fruition. In order for a successful season to occur, a few items were apparent but ignored. OSU had to stay healthy which did not happen with Nate Williams affecting the entire defense. Joe Bauserman could n...

Meyer denies reports of Ohio State job

"After a weekend where his name was bounced around like a lotto ball, Urban Meyer set the record straight Monday. "The former Florida head football coach told The Sun he never interviewed for the Arizona job and has not interviewed for the Ohio State job. And if the Ohio State job i...

Braxton Miller: Proving Himself

First posted by Stephan, at Inside The Shoe In an otherwise very ugly game for Ohio State against Purdue, Braxton Miller showed at times what has made him so special.  Miller escaped pressure time and time again to make a play, none seemingly more important than on 4th down on what shoul...

Penn State: It May Take A Decade

Allegations of child molestation have tarnished the reputation of a fine university and brought down, its legendary football coach. To this point, de facto corporations Penn State and The B1G Ten, have responded and acted out of self-interest. Each has a brand to preserve and to protect. ...

Pryor 2008 vs Miller 2011 (Updated through 10 games)

I will continue to update this as the season goes on, but it's pretty interesting to take a look at Terrelle Pryor's freshman year in 2008 and Braxton Miller's freshman year in 2011. Keep in mind Miller didn't play in the Akron game, while Pryor played in every game, so we will co...

What Went Right/Wrong: Purdue

First posted at Inside The Shoe While Ohio State has knocked themselves out of a chance to get into the Big Ten Championship Game, there is still an opportunity to build on these last games. This season could very well end in 6-6, or it could end in 8-4. It's a huge difference not only to...

Why we hate sports scandals

A few years ago, USC was hit with major penalties for improper benefits. Within, the last 12 months, Ohio State, North Carolina, LSU, Texas, Boise St., Auburn, Miami and Oregon have all come under that watchful eye of the NCAA.  It has been a lousy year for college football. And now t...

Purdue

  Purdue There we stood on the precipice, looking into the abyss and we could clearly see Darkest Day III.  Thankfully, Travis Howard stepped front of an Indiana pass and rescued us from the nightmare which could have ended the 2011 season and doomed Luke Fickell’s tenure ...

Seven Nation Army, PSU, and Ohio Stadium

I'm no fan of the use of Seven Nation Army in Ohio Stadium - I haven't been for a while, but it seems to sit well with the students so I've been able to shrug it off up until now. After seeing the crowds in State College tonight (and last night) singing it, I thought it would be good ...

Wishing Braxton the best of Luck

According to ESPN's NFL Analyst, the two greatest things in the world (in order) are Andrew Luck and Sliced Bread.  There are too few superlatives in their lexicon to describe his greatness.  There has never been a pro prospect with as much potential as Andrew Luck.  He is so g...
